on in washington. rick santorum, one of gop's most outspoken republican leaders and nationally he's raising 2016 speculation. let's get right to it. how do you look at 2016 right now? there's expectation you'll be in the hunt. where is your head now? >> my head now is we've got a lot on our plate. there's so much -- so much as i said during the campaign, this is the most critical election in our country's history and seeing the consequence now here in washington now around the world. we're trying to stay engaged. i started an organization, patriot voices and we got involved in that. we got involved in the treaty on capitol hill, they were trying to pass a u.n. treaty that we felt was an overreach, something that would involve the united nations in the rights of parents and being able to provide was best for their disabled children and as well as other things that we are disconcerning about the u.n. and reach here. i think most people would say about but for our action and what we did, the senate probably would have passed that. we'll stay ingauged on capitol hill there's a lot of folks that want
brabender ran rick santorum's presidential campaign. i expect you gentleman to play fair and aim directly below the belt. just kidding, bob. i want to ask you as a liberal, a progressive, looking across at the right you see jim demint, a guy the late tim russert once said i can't believe jim demint is a senator. he is the leader, the ramrod of all those right wing challenges. he put up ron johnson to beat mitch mcconnell because he's too liberal. he's leaving, quitting his senate seat, giving it up, to run the heritage foundation. we have other stuff coming up, but let's start with that. >> first of all, he's going to make a lot more money. ed fuelner, who is leaving, makes $1 million a year. demint has a net worth of $40,000. secondly, the leadership has tried to rein him in. they've said, you can't go out and go after these conservative republicans with really conservative republicans in primaries because you're setting us up to lose senate seats. now that he's out of there, he can become a kind of cross between grover norquist and the jim demint he always was. he can drive these hard r
again, dr. rick santorum's imaginaryium. >> there are some very, very troubling provisions that could open up pandora's box that could directly affect many families in america. imagine the situation if now the state, those who are not the parents of these children, have the determination as to what is in the best interest of the child. >> stephen: that's right. reaffirming protections to the disabled equals the u.n. coming between you and your child. it's hard enough for parents to get the kids to listen now. just wait until everything you say has to go through those translator headsets. ( laughter ). now, now, sure the idea that an international treaty for the disabled would give the u.n. rights to take your kid away sounds farred fetched, butun what else sounds farfetched? anyone listening to rick santorum, and yet, here we are! ( applause ) besides, besides i believe america has already proven its commitment to accessibility for the disabled because without the americans with disabilities act, bob dole would never have been able to park close to the capitol, ride up in an elevator
to make rick sick? as in rick santorum. he came closes to any republican to dislodging mitt romney as presidential nominee here, had all of 28-cents in his campaign war shift. do you find any of this troubling? >> i do. for republicans to go out and concede on the revenue side. does washington need more revenue? yeah it does, looking at overall percentage of money of revenues that come in to federal government, than what has been average since world war ii, we're below that the argument should be, yeah, we need more revenue, but the question is, how do republicans historically, how do we argue, for more revenue? growth. we need more growth, if we have more growth, highest revenues we had in history of the -- since world war ii was 21 or 22% of gdp, what happened? tech boom, huge capital gains and start ups, and that is how we got revenue, it was not by raising taxes that is an argument we have with principle made and have been correct in making it. to now say, well, you know, president won and we have to concede that point. i'm not saying there can't be tax reform. but that should
here tonight. >> my pleasure. >> all right. >>> coming up, failed presidential rick santorum has a new job and that new job says a lot about why republicans should get used to losing elections for a long time to come. >>> and mitt romney in forced retirement. what his aides are saying he's up to. aspirin, really? i haven't thought about aspirin for years. aspirin wouldn't really help my headache, i don't think. aspirin is just old school. people have doubts about taking aspirin for pain. but they haven't experienced extra strength bayer advanced aspirin. in fact, in a recent survey, 95% of people who tried it agreed that it relieved their headache fast. what's different? it has micro-particles. enters the bloodstream fast and rushes relief to the site of pain. visit fastreliefchallenge.com today for a special trial offer. visit fastreliefchallenge.com i have obligations. cute tobligations, but obligations.g. i need to rethink the core of my portfolio. what i really need is sleep. introducing the ishares core, building blocks for the heart of your portfolio. find out why 9 out of 10 lar
on the right championed by failed senator rick santorum, he, who i should mention is a columnist at a birther website, that's his job now, except for his nutso theories ratifying this treaty was a political no brainer. it has bipartisan support. this has the real thing. real bipartisan support from leading democrats and leading republicans. this treaty has vocal support from veterans. so many of them return from war with disabilities. veterans are as potent a constituency on both sides of the aisle. decorated veterans john mccain and john kerry, who have been rivals in the senate on everything short of which way is up and which way is down, these men have been bipartisan leaders together on this treaty. the u.n. convention on the rights of persons with disabilities has united the seemingly un-unitable. the vote was scheduled today. ratifying a treaty requires 66 yea votes. former senator bob dole was there at the senate for the occasion. in his wheelchair. the decorated wounded combat veteran, the former republican presidential nominee on the floor of the senate. he was there with his wife. s

against the treaty, heritage foundation, the family research council and rick santorum's patriot pac and they used facts that weren't true like this. >> this is a direct assault on us and our family. to hand over to the state the ability to make medical determinations and see what is in the best interest of the child and not look at the wonderful gift that every child is. >> now, former senator and presidential kapd date rick santorum led the charge against the u.n. treaty and brought his 4-year-old disabled daughter bella to the events and warned it threatened american sovereignty and allow the u.n. to make decisions about disabled children in america. that is not true. here's what senator john kerry said last night. >> well, i have great respect for both rick and his wife karen and their daughter and their family. he's a strong family man. but he either simply hasn't read the treaty or doesn't understand it or he was just not factual in what he said. because the united nations has absolutely zero, zero, i mean, zero ability to order or to tell or to even -- i mean, they can suggest
kerry is firing back at senator rick santorum. it's all about this. opposition to a u.n. treaty. one that a lot of people thought was a no-brainer. it was about the rights of the disabled all over the world. we brought you this story yesterday. senate republicans rejecting this treaty on tuesday despite the fact that one of their own, bob dole, bob dole, a former majority leader, came to the floor in a wheelchair trying to draw support for this treaty. he was being pushed by his wife and made an impassioned plea. senator santorum explained opposition to this treaty in a piece published in "the daily beast." in part he says this. our nation has been been the worldwide leader when it comes to protecting the disabled. we should be telling the u.n. and not the other way around how to ensure dignity and respect for the disabled. effectively saying nobody tells the united states what to do. it sets a very dangerous precedent perhaps for other things. okay. that sounded legitimate until it came out that that's not what the treaty suggests. senator kerry was mincing absolutely no words in sa
at all. some republicans have actually gone further off the deepened. rick santorum, for example still smarting from his own party loss and the shellacking from the party that he supports, he has greed to be columnist for "world net daily." you hopefully do not know this. this publishes rivetting stories like america on linen's path to war fair, or of course, you remember this one when animals are afraid they don't pray. well, i would pray if i was rick santorum's animal. maybe he just wants the comfort of being with other crazy towners. heck he's going to
. some don't agree. let's hear for the pros and the cons here. >> one of my favorites was when rick santorum insisted that president kennedy's religious speech in houston put religion out of the public sphere and made him want to throw up. not one reporter who reported that remark went to google -- and i did -- looked at that speech and said as a matter of fact he talks about the role of religion. he talks about the priests in his life. so it's sort of like you're just -- i understand that on deadline it could be difficult, but you're just allowed to spew this stuff and people don't even sometimes use the basic tools of journalism to say really? is that what president kennedy said? >> the best line in that speech which may be kennedy's best speech was the interest here is not what church i go to, it's what america i believe in. the issue on the table here is not my beliefs or faith or lack thereof, it's about this country and what this country should say to people of faith or no faith. it should be how we treat as americans all the different belief systems. >> let me up the ante on
you would be nodding with would be rick santorum. am i misreading? >> i like rick santorum a lot, i like mitt romney. >> who do you most agree with? >> i my opinions were fairly forth right through the debate and i felt i was the perfect condition for america but that didn't happen. quite honestly, whatever candidate it, is i will be happy to back. >> presumably mitt romney is the least of the four candidates that you would personally endorse, right, because of his own health care plan wasn't that different. >> i think that's the positive difference that i made in this campaign. now mitt romney's answer is that he will get behind a full scale repeal. no matter who our nominee is, they've all committed verbally to appeal of obama care and it's up to us to hold our nominee's feet to the fire. >> so here's competition. let me put my own doctor hat. if i was prescribing some medicine for you right now, congressman, i would tay tsai the situation is looking pretty terminal for your race to be the gop nominee. why don't you do the decent thing and pull out? why are you staying in the race
. >> the mitt romney campaign on the ropes, rick santorum, in the polls, mitt romney says we're going to turn it out with an economic speech. they went out to the detroit lions, 60,000 seats, and it was .0002 full. >> the worst political theater was the members of the president's campaign in the spin room after the first debate in denver. very, very, very gamely attempting -- attempting to put a happy face. >> for me, it was a particular moment in the herman cain campaign. >> was -- >> was kind of when -- it was when he had stuff twirling around in his head and we're going to look at that right now. >> so you agreed with president obama on libya, or not? >> okay, libya. president obama supported the uprising, correct? i do not agree with the way he handled it for the following reason. no, that is a different one. i got to go back to see -- >> oh. >> got all of this stuff twirling around in my head. >> oh, we miss him so badly. we're going to go back with more of the biggest surprise, person of the year award, donald trump award, coming up. [ male announcer ] it's that time of year again. time
lee was joined by surprise surprise, rick santorum that said this will prevent parents. again, again, the treaty on disabledties just says all of the disabled people around the world should have the same opportunities that the united states does. hold the united states up in the americans disabilitities act as a model they should follow. my point is, if these insane republicans are still out there in la la land still out there like the flat earth society on this issue, do you think they are going to be able to come to an agreement on the debt ceiling or -- and on the fiscal cliff? forget it. >> it was remarkable to see how this happened yesterday. i will read from john stanton's twitter feed our friend from business feed. i was there -- buzzfeed. his presence could push it over the edge. dole was there watching them vote. after he left the floor, he said the republicans very quietly got up, didn't vote from their desk. they got up quietly walked up to vote. he said that was remarkable because nobody wants that video in a commercial of them voting against
in this political condition has not been easy. come on, rick santorum was a serious contender for the nomination. that happened. and newt gingrich won the south carolina primary. for us political geeks here, the fact that newt gingrich was the jesse jackson of 2012 is complete hilarity. you have to laugh to keep from crying at the biggest punch line of all. after two years of campaigning, a record $2 billion in election spending, the angst, anxiety, where did he end up? where we started. president barack obama in the white house and a house of representatives. we can't hold it in any longer. our very last show of the year is something of an experiment. our first ever annual look back in laughter. we begin the year with the op liptic decline on the mayan calendar. why else would the republicans risk leaving the country? to be run by any of this cast of characters. they thought they would be blown to oblivion. the cookiest of this crew bowed out before 2012 got going. we feared the year might leave us without the gems of 2011, like this one from our favorite pizza man. >> you agreed with president
support for this treaty. rick santorum led the charge against the treaty. he and some other republicans warned it would jeopardize u.s. sovereignty and personal freedoms. listen. >> the problem is, there's a provision in this international law which we would be adopting if the senate ratifies this that puts the state, the state in the position of determining what i in the best interest of a disabled child. >> i simply cannot support a tr that threatens the right of parents to raise their children with the constant looming threat of state interference. >> the treaty could be used to interfere with the ability of parents with disabled children to decide what action is in the best interest of their children. >> that all sounds very alarming. keeping them honest, it's not true. the treaty does create a committee that can issue nonbinding recommendations on how nations can do better on disability rights, but it doesn't. i repeat does not require any changes to existing state or federal laws. in july former republican attorney general dick thornburgh testified before the senate foreign relati
it. john brabender is a republican strategist and top adviser to rick santorum, and robert shrum, democratic strategist and columnist for the daily beast. john, you're on the inside. you know something about this. do you understand how somebody would think that the electorate that's going to participate in 2012, in a general election with barack obama, an african-american, a democrat, and a relatively popular president, would create a different electorate than the one you saw say in 2010 or in a primary situation? >> well, i think -- as you know, every poll starts with an assumption. here is who we think is going to show up and vote. therefore, that's who we ask the question of. republicans, and not just the romney campaign but republican pollsters all across the country, guessed wrong. we didn't see the intensity that there was there for the president, particularly among young voters. we oversampled male white voters. and, you know, you add all that together, and you're going to see two, three, four-point differences. plus, the assumption always is that the incumbent is not goin
gingrich and rick santorum, and we arrived at the inevitable mitt romney. >> you ended up with a weak candidate. >> in many ways yes. >> do you think any of the other guys or women that you passed over would have been better? >> i don't know yet. you don't know. >> do you actually think so? do you think michele bachmann would have been a better candidate for president? >> i don't know. >> you're being a real -- that's agnosticism carried very far here. i think he beat all the other candidates. >> in some ways he was very good, but in some ways -- >> your best candidates were on the bench. your best candidates even though they had weaknesses are obviously other people that could have ran. mitch daniels, jeb bush. >> there were a lot of people that could have run and didn't run. mitt romney sort of came into the race without -- >> chris christie would have run a better race. >> certainly would have been more interesting. what would they have done at the end when they were walking around together? but going back to -- they wouldn't have had poultry for lunch. they would have had a much h
. last week we heard from rick santorum, one of the 16, 17 front-runners in the gop field. apparently he may make a comeback in 2016. >> no. >> i don't think so? >> no. >> according to the weekly standard here, he says he is open to running again in four years. you think at this point that is all a bunch of poppycock? >> well, rick santorum could be open to running again, but the republican electorate is not open to having him as a candidate in 2016. i wrote aggressively during the primary campaign saying he should not be our nominee. he is way too polarizing. it goes against what we as republicans or democrats want to do, which is broaden our political spectrum. >> erin mcpike, sometimes i feel some of the folks we talk about that could be potential standard bearers of the gop, we kind of talk about the same folks. there people out there that we aren't talking about who could very well step up over the next few years and become the leader of the party? >> oh, sure. and just today we're talking about the senator-elect from texas, ted cruz. people are beginning to talk about him as a pote
americans with disabilities act. that fact didn't stop rick santorum from twisting the facts along the way. >> this is a direct assault on us and to our family to hand over to the state to make medical determinations and see what is in the best interest of the child and not look at what the gift every child is. >> john kerry said this is one of the saddest days that i have seen in the 28 days i've been in the senate. today he addressed mr. santorum's claims. >> i have great respect rick and karen and their daughter and family. he is a strong family man. but, he either simply hasn't read the treaty or doesn't understand it or was not factual in what he said. the united nations has zero ability to order or to tell or to even, they can suggest but they have no legal capacity to tell the united states to do anything under this treaty. nothing. >> tonight many disability advocate's rights say that the treaty trumps rights everywhere. he is the first quadrapalegic senator to serve in the house. you voted for this. why do you think it is so important? >> first of all, thank you for having me on t
according to the friends at politte he co-. already off the market, clintoncuomo.com, rick santorum2016.com, joe biden2016.com, elizabeth warren2016.com and surprising santor santorumbush.com. >> whoa. >> all the speculation has got us thinking, maybe we should get it in on the game. people are making thousands off the cyber investments so why not get in on the action? >> absolutely. >> what domain would you snatch up. let's backspin on it. >> what you got, susan? >> i did research. there's optimists out apparently romneyryan is still taken. now, what's interesting -- >> it could happen. >> is that romneyryan2016. >> it is. >> how about ryanromney 2016? >> i didn't look that one up. but i did look up bloomberg and bloomberg2016. since he's leaving and leaving an opening for 2013, i thought it's the holiday times maybe i should buy s.e. for mayor. it is available. >> i can't believe it. >> snatch that right up for her. >> i guess that means it's my turn to talk. >> you got something for us here, steve? >> this is supposed to be the fun segment and i will give you my idea of fun way may not b
and presidential candidate rick santorum led the charge against the u.n. treaty. he brought his 4-year-old disabled daughter bella to the events warnings it threatened american sovereignty and would allow the u.n. to make decisions about disabled children in america. that's just not true. here's what senator john kerry who fought hard to get the treaty ratified said last night. >> i have great respect for both rick and his wife, karen, and their daughter and their family. he's a strong family man. he either simply hasn't read the treaty or doesn't understand it, or he was just not factual in what he said. the united nations has absolutely zero, zero, i mean zero ability to order or to tell or to even -- they can suggest, but they have no legal capacity to tell the united states to do anything under this treaty. nothing. >> as we told you last night, former republican, repeat republican attorney general dick thornberg testified before the senate foreign relations committee in july basically saying exactly that. there's nothing in the treaty that interferes with u.s., federal or state laws, nothing.
republicans. >> do you know who agrees with you? rick santorum. i spoke to him on press pass and this is what he said. and newt gingrich, you respond after you hear this. >> the greatest leverage he has is that he put together a deal with the republicans over a year ago that gives him pretty much what he wants. which is a dramatic -- which is taxes back to the pre-bush rates. so it gets all the tax increases. and he can blame the ones that are not popular on republicans for not negotiating. he gets something that he'll never get in a negotiation. >> the rest of that conversation online, by the way, with rick santorum. newt gingrich? is that why the president and geithner are saying, sure, go over the cliff? >> well, i think first of all, if you are a liberal democrat, going over the cliff is not nearly as bad as giving up on some other values such as tax cuts. second, the house republicans didn't understand what a fundamental moment they're at. this is the beginning of the next four years. i think the president believes that he can in fact block boehner into collapse, which then leads me to a
at the roster of likely gop candidates from bobby jindal, rick santorum possibly, chris christie, marco rubio, would any of them be able to front up against this formidable candidate if she were to run, hillary clinton? >> right. well, i mean, if the election were to be held right now, no, they'd be grounded into the dirt by her. her approval ratings are sky high. she's never been this popular before. people who were for her in 2008 when she lost the nomination to president obama would definitely be there again. so, yeah, they'd have a hard time, but you know what? there are people within the democratic party who want to run for president, and i'm not quite sure that they would stand down necessarily -- >> who do you have in mind, john? >> well, new york governor andrew cuomo is rumored to want to run. maryland mayor martin o'malley is rumored to want to run. there are other people within the democratic party who would love for the chance to run for president in 2016. it would be an open seat. there would be no incumbent running. and so if hillary clinton is going to run for president from th
